Preplanning Services

When you’re ready to begin planning, you can reach out to us online or by phone. One of our advance planners will arrange to meet with you to discuss your wishes and walk you through your options. Together we will help you create a funeral plan that meets your needs and works with your budget, whether you prefer simple arrangements or wish to finalize every detail of your service.


We’ve prepared a preplanning checklist to help you to think through what you’ll need to consider.




Prepaying is not required. However, by taking care of the financial aspect of your funeral or memorial service beforehand, you protect your family members against inflation and rate increases in the future. All plans are transferrable if you decide to work with a different funeral home, and any funds received are held in a secure third-party trust until it’s time to use them.

Planning your final arrangements in advance is a gift to your loved ones. Thinking about the end of your life is never easy, but it can be a tremendous relief to know that you are saving the people you care about from the stress of planning your funeral while managing their own grief. Preplanning also gives you time to plan a meaningful and personalized service, and it lets you lock in rates and make payment arrangements in advance to keep costs manageable for your family.
